Role of Bias in De-Escalation Skills

Minneapolis, MN US

The goal of the course is to provide an opportunity to practice de-escalation techniques and explore the role of implicit bias in de-escalation. The course is 4 hours long, including 30 minutes of pre-learning content. During the course, we will have actors embedded into the simulations, to allow for realistic practice of de-escalation skills and implicit bias mitigation strategies.
